  • Everyone at the Residence and Conference  Services of Brescia University College  have been extremely helpful in the planning of our wedding to be held in the new centre at the end of Aug 2013. Right from the beginning discussions at the bridal show to the site meetings and tours of the accommodations, the staff have been very friendly, professional, courteous, and willing to assist us in meeting our needs. It is very exciting to watch the building of the new Residence and Dining Pavilion and we look forward to being one of the first groups to use this new facility. It has been a real pleasure working with Jacqueline and the staff at Brescia and I look forward to continuing our relationship as we plan for our wedding.

  • The Nia Teachers and Students love coming together once a year at Brescia for a weekend of Movement at Nia Palooza. The conference staff have helped us organize this large event. The facility is comfortable, open, and clean. All the amenities are there for our guests. We get great advice with the planning and best setup for our different functions.

    Always positive, friendly, and with quick follow-through on our questions and requests. We love coming back to Brescia!
